Are You Blind?!?

Sometimes when I’m driving, I get cranky with other drivers on the road with me and I want to yell at them, “Are you blind?!?!??”  I also know that a driver can get cranky with me when I don’t see them in my blind spot.  The whole blind topic reminds me, with a playful chuckle, of basketball refs in high school when my friends and I would watch a game.  If I thought some refs were particularly awful, I’d loudly sing “Two Blind Mice;” my variation on the children’s sing-along, “Three Blind Mice.”  I understand that I was being disrespectful and at that time, I didn’t care.  The whole subject of blindness can include being blind-sided, having blind spots, color blindness and sometimes we use the word, “blind” to mean oblivious or clueless, being unaware. 

A Home for God’s Presence

In this sermon clip Sarah talks about what our endgame with God should be. Sarah also ends with a special verse and message!

Show and Tell Part 1: A Learner’s Mindset

Do you remember having “show and tell” in school? Where each student gets to show their assets and tell their classmates all about it? Join Sarah in this series on John 8:1-11, when Jesus’ teaching was interrupted by the Pharisees, with bringing in a woman caught in the act of sin. In that moment, the attention was taken off Jesus by putting the woman in the spotlight to be humiliated. Watch as Sarah makes deep connections about having a learner’s mindset, a humble heart, and a forgiving nature.

Word of Wisdom

Sarah ends her sermon with a special message from 2 Peter 3:9.

The Bible as a Weapon

“Teacher, this woman has been caught in adultery, in the very act. Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women; what then do You say?” When the religious leaders confronted Jesus with the woman caught in adultery, telling Him about Mosaic law, they were using the Bible to challenge Jesus, condemn the woman and possibly kill her with stones. Maybe this is one of the best examples of almost literally weaponizing the Bible.

Pick and Shovel

What’s your favorite genre of movie or book?   When I think about what’s popular and sells well for entertainment, I quickly think about Marvel movies, spy or thriller books, along with murder mysteries or science fiction.  Maybe we like to be excited and surprised, maybe we like a distraction from our day-to-day grind.  While I know that some of us like such excitements and distractions, I also recognize that lots of us also find great comfort in routines and consistency.

Gallows, Insomnia, and Cluelessness

Did stuff about you ever happen behind your back?  No doubt that people talk behind our backs and people make decisions involving us without getting our input.  I don’t particularly enjoy learning that things have been planned about me, but I wasn’t included in such planning or conversations.

Clog or Cog?

When you hear the word, “clog” what comes to your mind?  Do you think of shoes? Zits from clogged pores? High blood pressure from clogged arteries?  A few years ago, we had a clog in one of the drainpipes from our kitchen sink.  We didn’t know about this clog until we ran the garbage disposal and the water backed up only to leak through the basement ceiling.  Not only was this clog and experience unpleasant, but it was also expensive.
